Helical Pile Foundations For Commercial Light Standards

Enjoy faster foundation installation and stronger support for light standards by eliminating the need for extensive footings

How Helical Foundations Work For Light Standards

Light standards are tall and subject to high structural loads from winds and storms. This makes them a challenge to support in our shifting Manitoba soils. Helical pile foundations are installed without excavation, are ready for immediate loading, and offer incredible axial and lateral load capacities.

  • Helical Pile

    The unique combination of narrow pile shaft and wide helix plate anchors the helical pile in firm layers of soil and protects your light standard from soil movement

  • Easy Adapter

    Adjustable adapter caps makes it easy to transition from the helical pile to to your light standard

  • Long Life

    Our galvanized helical piles have a minimum lifespan of 50 years in the ground, delivering long-term reliable performance


Why Helical Piles for Light Standards in Winnipeg?

Quick & Easy Installation

Having a helical pile foundation installed for your light standard is dramatically faster than other solutions. Most projects only require a few short hours from the time we arrive at your site to the moment you're ready to build your lighting on a sturdy support

Large Load Capacities

Despite the fact a helical pile is far more compact than traditional footings, they deliver the same (or even better) load capacities. Most importantly for light standards, helical foundations resist the strong lateral (horizontal) forces that come from winds and storms

No Ground Disruption

Because helical piles create no soil disturbance while being installed, there's no loads of dirt to clean up or environmental concerns from extensive excavation. A perfect solution for installing light standards in delicate or ecologically-sensitive areas.

Why should I use helical piles for light standards?

Quick installation, minimal environmental impact, immediate load-bearing capacity, and high performance in diverse soil conditions are just a few reasons to consider a helical foundation for your light standard.

It depends! The initial cost of helical piles may be higher, but there's much more to consider when calculating cost-efficiency. Don't forget about the speed, safety, versatility, durability, performance, and no-mess, that helical piles offer. Overall, helical piles are a more economical option!

How do helical piles manage harsh weather?

Completely fine! Our helical piles are available with a galvanized coating, making them resistant to the harsh weather and climate we face in Manitoba. They're more than capable of withstanding freeze-thaw cycles, floods, droughts, and even fire (within reason, of course).

Are helical piles really more eco-friendly?

Yes! A big advantage of helical piles is that their installation causes no soil displacement or disturbance to the area. Ideal for use in areas where environmental preservation is key. Additionally, they can be removed without a trace and complete recycled or even reused after inspection.
